No hurry, so far there isn't much I can sensibly do on Gitlab anyway.

I've withdrawn the "general" application, and submitted new ones for
"code/kicad" (which would probably be at some
non-commit-but-able-to-send-merge-requests level) and for
packaging/kicad-winbuilder (where it might make sense for me to have

Unsure how much time I will have, but there is always procrastination of
more urgent things that opens up time slots for kicad work.

Setting up a runner needs a lot of permissions, or at least someone with a
lot of permissions extracting the necessary access token, as Github are
rightfully assuming that runner administrators have a lot of access to the
pipeline anyway, so I'll probably start by setting up my own projects on
Gitlab with my machine configured as a runner, and then subsequently
"sharing" that runner once it's working.
